DRESDEN (June 19, malady 2016) – Tyler Borth and Andy Moore were tied for the dash lead going into racing action today at Dresden Raceway. Not anymore.

The Ingersoll tailsitter scored his first win with MAGNUM SEELSTER in the third race for owner/trainer Doug Currie of Brigden. The 11-year-old Intrepid Seelster gelding battled HOWDY PARTNER and Brad Forward down the lane for a win in 1:59.2.

The 24-year-old driver rolled with DEX THE LAND in the fifth race to make it three wins in a row for owners Jim Napper and Peter Verstraete of Bothwell and trainer Cathy Gaudreau. The three-year-old Badlands Hanover filly went wire to wire in 2:01.2.
WINDSONG KANGO was Borth’s fourth trip to the winner’s circle in the seventh race as he came from off the pace with the five-year-old WIndsong Cruiser filly in 2:01 flat. WINDSONG KANGO is owned and trained by Diana McIntosh of Strathroy.
